Beautiful church, beautiful decoration and frescoes. carefully maintained. Fortunately, open after 17:00. Entrant who gives. I recommend to all, is not risky. More on youtube travel video: PSIS visit. Iva + PETR (CZ)

Look for the dome on the skyline in the old town. It's a small but beautiful place. No photos or videos though and very quiet so be respectful of this.

I visited the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Its rose window, also called wheel window in Gothic architecture, gives to the church a somewhat English character. Wonderful!

Not to be missed, only a short drive out of Tuscania, very limited parking. There is a lovely castellated church tower in front of this church. The church itself has a lovely door with beautiful stone carvings surrounding it. The circular window above the door...More
